Once Upon A Time I Made A Wedding Cake

23 Oct

My schedule is all off-kilter recently due to being sick and out of the country for the past couple of days, so in lieu of a quote this week, I’m going to give you some cake eye-candy to salivate over.

As you guys may have gathered, I baked the wedding cake for my best friends’ wedding 2 weeks ago. It was one of the scariest undertakings I’ve ever foolishly volunteered for, but despite the constant montage playing in my head of things that could go wrong, it actually turned out pretty perfectly. I just wish I’d taken more pictures of the baking / decorating process.

Cake: Southern pecan spice cake
Frosting: Butter pecan cream cheese frosting

I’m not going to give away my secret recipe, but I will say that it had lots of butter in it (so you know it was delicious).

When the photographer posts her professional shots, I’ll be sure to share those with you as well. I hope she got a picture of the inside of the cake, because I definitely forgot.

    Cake looks fabulous! But why did you let them cut it! Too beautiful to eat!

      I didn’t want them to cut it! I didn’t eat any of it. It felt like cannibalism.

    You are stupid, Queen, because it was ridiculously delicious in addition to being so beautiful. Best wedding cake ever.
